The Daylighters, Oh Mom/Hard headed girl


Oh Mom was licenced from Tip Top Records. On this recording the lineup of the Daylighters was Tony Gideon, Eddie Thomas, Charles Colbert Jr., Curtis Burrell And Ulysses Mcdonald. They were backed on this recording by Gary & The Knight Lites; Charles Colbert joined that group and they were renamed American Breed, a name under which they had some success. Oh Mom was recorded in 1964.

Tony Gideon has contacted us. He formed the Daylighters at Hooper City High School, in Birmingham, Alabama in 1956. He moved to Chicago in 1958. Tony sings on “Oh Mom teach me how to Uncle Willie” which was produced by Edward “Eddie” Thomas, Charles “Chuck” Colbert, Jr.and Tony Gideon for Colbert Productions, Inc. and released on one of their labels: Tip Top Records, before it was leased to a close friend, Juggy Murray, the owner of Sue Records (USA).

I would like to thank Mr Gideon for his invaluable help in compiling this item.
